Although monarchfan91 has made a valiant run toward the top -- outscoring leader AEOS, 696-502, in the first 38 games of the bowl round -- I don't see any way that he can close the slim 35-point gap between him and the top spot.

That's because he (and the other two in the Top 4, USM72 and Motley Blazer) have nearly identical picks for the final two games: Monarchfan picked Louisiana to win by 17, the other three have the Cajuns winning by 14. Even if monarchfan's choice is perfect, he'll only gain 26 points on AEOS. He and AEOS also have identical picks for the championship game (LSU wins by 7), so there's no ground to be gained there. The other two picked LSU to win by 6 & 4, which is not nearly enough of a spread for them to catch AEOS either, even if Motley Blazer gets 75 Bonus Question points.

Congrats, AEOS!!
